When gift-giving goes wrong

My New Shirt
by Cary Fagan

When I was a kid, I always received a box of pantyhose at Christmas. I hate pantyhose; they're uncomfortable and hard to put on. So I can certainly relate to David's aversion to his very white, very stiff, very itchy white shirt. Haunted by the vision of a vast closet filled with an infinite number of shirts, David throws it out the window! When his dog takes off with it, the chase is on! Cary Fagan has written a delightful story enlivened by Dusan Petricic's hilarious illustrations.
